9.7 inch iPad Pro Is Powered By An Underclocked CPU and GPU

Apple unveiled the 9.7-inch iPad Pro yesterday during its March event. During the official announcement, the company also revealed that the tablet comes with features the same A9X chipset as the 12.9-inch iPad Pro launched last year.

However, there is a big difference between the two. While, the two tablets have the same SoC, the A9X chipset comes with both an underclocked CPU and an underclocked GPU in the 9.7 inch model as compared to the iPad Pro 12.9.

Apple has updated an image on its website which shows the comparison between both tablets.

The picture reveals that the iPad Pro 12.9 has a 2.5x faster CPU compared to the one in an A7 chip, while the 9.7-inch device only has a 2.4x faster processor.

The GPU of the smaller iPad Pro is even worse. The bigger 12.9 inch version has 5 times faster graphics than the A7, but the GPU in the 9.7-inch units is just 4.3 times better when compared to the A7.

We can guess that the weaker GPU is due to the reason that Apple wants to cool off things with the smaller iPad Pro.

The less surface area means that less heat will be produced. However, the 9.7inch iPad Pro isn’t bad when compared to the bigger version.

The smaller iPad Pro also comes with True Tone Display. True Tone adjusts the brightness of the screen in comparison to the surroundings.

The tablet also comes with a 12 MP primary camera with dual tone LED flash.

However, the 12.9-inch model has faster data transfer and charging due to USB 3 lightning port, while the 9.7-inch iPad Pro supports USB 2.0
